The 2008 UEFA European Football Championship will take place this year and will be hosted in Austria and Switzerland. 16 of the best European football countries will face off from June 7th till June 29th. To celebrate this event, Adidas (which originates from Germany) will be supporting the German team by creating this Adidas Euro 2008 Gazelle II pack. This pack will consist of two sneakers including one for the present year and one to commemorate the time when West Germany won the European Championship in 1980.

Spanning both casual and higher end offerings, Japanese brand Rhythm has made a note of it to create aesthetically simple designs. Last season saw their talents recognized on various levels as stores set out to work together with the Japanese brand on a series of collaborations. A look at their 2008 Spring/Summer collection continues on with their collection of sneakers each named after various food items.
We have previously seen the 1000% Fendi Bearbricks which were produced for VIP members of Fendi only. If you missed out on that, you can check it out here. However, nothing compares in size to this really huge Bearbrick which stands in one of the Fendi stores in Paris. You probably won’t be able to purchase this as this is probably a store display. So for now, all we can do is just look at the pictures and drool.
Update: There is apparently one of these at the 5th Avenue Fendi store in Manhattan, New York as well. (Thanks Matthew!)

Releasing in April and May is this Nike Air Force 1 “ACG” Pack which takes its color inspiration from some popular OG colorways. There will be three sneakers available in this pack including the Air Force 1 Safari which takes its color cues from the classic Air Safari. Then there’s the Air Force 1 Mowabb which is inspired by the Mowabb Huarache runners. Lastly the Air Force 1 Wildwood gets it shade from the ACG Air Wildwood sneaker. This is definitely something interesting to look out for in the coming months.
